- 1 1⁄2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
- 1 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
- 1⁄2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 cups old fashioned oats (not instant)
- 1 cup dried apricot, cut into raisin-size pieces
- 1 cup unsalted pistachio nuts, chopped
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Combine flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and cloves in a medium-size bowl; set aside.
- Combine the butter and sugars in a large mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until well blended.
- Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth.
- Beat in the flour mixture until just combined and stir in oats, apricots and pistachios.
- Cover and leave bowl in the refrigerator for 10 minutes (or up to 6 hours) to let the dough firm up.
- Drop the dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets, leaving about 3 inches between each cookie.
- Bake cookies until they're golden around the edges but still soft on top, about 15-17 minutes.
- Let them stand on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer them with a metal spatula to a wire rack to cool completely.
I did only 2 dozen but I had 36 cookies. I used half butter and half vegetable oil. I didn't pack the brown sugar. I used dried cranberries. They cooked the 17 minutes require. Thanks Lainey. They're wonderful. Made for Holiday tag.
